Notes

First edition, first impression. One of 50 numbered copies with two original rubber stamp prints by Schiele, each printed in red on Japan paper, initialled in pencil lower right by Otto Kallir and numbered lower left. The stamps are titled Head of a Man and Two Figures. There is only one known impression of each of these prints documented during the artist's lifetime.
The facsimile of the sketchbook by Egon Schiele was reproduced from the original in 1966 by Arthur Jaffe, New York, in an edition of 500 copies. A special issue of the first 50 copies, numbered I-L (though actually numbered in arabic), contains two handprints, made from the original rubber-stencils which Egon Schiele had cut about 1916.
